Remembering Miss Dixieby The Remembering Miss Dixie Committee
For those of you who were not able to join us in person last Wednesday night, Nov. 18 at the 9th Annual Louise Scruggs Forum honoring Dixie Hall at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, we have good news! The entire event was live-streamed and recorded, and you may view it at this link.

The Remembering Miss Dixie Committee would like to thank Peter Cooper, Abi Tapia, and everyone at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum involved in organizing this wonderful event that honored Miss Dixie’s music and her many contributions to the bluegrass music world. We especially appreciated the fine music presented by Chris Jones and the Night Drivers, Tony & Heather Berry Mabe, Sierra Hull & Justin Moses, and Carl Jackson with Val Storey and Jerry Salley. We were honored by the presence of Ms. Rita Forrester, manager of the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, Virginia, and also the granddaughter of AP and Sara Carter. Our gratitude is also extended to The Gibson Foundation, which underwrites the Louise Scruggs Forum each year.

Stay tuned for more news after the first of the year about a “Remembering Miss Dixie” tribute concert at Song of the Mountains May 7, 2016, at the historic Lincoln Theatre in Marion, Virginia, which will feature a night of live music written by Dixie Hall and performed by some of her favorite bluegrass and old-time music artists. The program, hosted by Tim White, will be filmed and edited into two episodes for the popular PBS television series.

The following month in Owensboro, Kentucky, we’re proud to announce a new exhibit honoring Miss Dixie and Tom T. Hall’s contributions to bluegrass music will be unveiled at the International Bluegrass Music Museum. Make your plans now to attend ROMP, the museum’s annual fundraising festival celebrating the roots and branches of bluegrass music, on June 22-25, 2016, and also check out the new exhibit.

At this time of Thanksgiving we’re particularly thankful for the legacy of music and love Miss Dixie left for us to continue sharing. And we’re so thankful for each of you, in the bluegrass music family.

Wishing you the best, and may the circle be unbroken,
The Remembering Miss Dixie Committee,
Nancy Cardwell, Annette Kelley and Melissa Lawrence Buck
